I heard about Jesse when someone directed me to his web site, Slow Wave. People write to him about their dreams, and then he draws the dream in a four-frame comic format. He puts a new one up every week. I enjoyed flipping through the archives on his site, and ended up buying the book. I can’t exactly put my finger on why I find it so funny, though. It’s not that all the dreams are a laugh riot in and of themselves, but the deadpan way he treats them just cracks me up. For example, one begins
“I dreamt I’d agreed to be shot behind my old high school…”
Ha! That just makes me laugh. I don’t know. Stop looking at me.
